Real Madrid Set For Barcelona Clash In Spanish Cup

Real Madrid Set For Barcelona Clash In Spanish Cup

However, his situation at Real Madrid underwent a dramatic U-turn in the second part of the season following Gareth Bale's injury.

Modric will be free to return for the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Barcelona couldn't count on a suspended Neymar for that match, but Messi scored twice, including a dramatic last-gasp goal, to seal a memorable 3-2 win.

There was simply no stopping the former Malaga playmaker from that moment as he helped Real Madrid to four wins in their final four matches of the campaign.

Zidane will see his salary in the Spanish capital nearly double from €4.35m to around €8m-per-season, although some of his wages will be dependent on how well Real do at defending both their La Liga and Champions League crowns in 2017/18.

"I don't know if we can play even better than we have been, but we're going to keep trying", Zidane said after the Super Cup win. The first attempt of the legendary Frenchman won the Champions League. Bale had returned to fitness for the clash in his hometown, but Isco was given the nod to start as the 25-year-old was finally trusted on the biggest of stages.

They then beat both Sheffield Wednesday and Reading on penalties in the playoffs to win promotion to the top flight for the first time.

He then backed that up with a La Liga and European double in 2016-17 - Real's first since 1958.

Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool have made bids to try and lure Marco Asensio away from Real Madrid this summer, according to a report in the Daily Star.

Isco's current contract is due to expire in June 2018 and it was said that Real Madrid were also ready to negotiate his departure in order to avoid losing him for free next summer.

The Spanish global had less than 12 months to run on his existing deal at the Bernabeu and had been sensationally linked with a move to rivals Barcelona as well as Premier League giants Manchester United and Arsenal.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and his players look dejected as Real Madrid players lift the trophy.
